Transcript Fred Couples is seen here being interviewed by ABC's Curtis Strange prior to the final round at the 1998 Shell Houston Open. Couples was the fan favorite, and shot 68 on Sunday to take third place, only two shots off of David Duval's winning score of 276. by Ryan Monceaux Fred couples' name in Cougar sports history will live on forever. No one else endears mself to golf more than Freddie, and no one is more appreciated by it's fans. Couples is loved everywhere he goes, and especially here in Houston where he got his first taste of success. Coach Dave Williams recruited Couples out of the Seattle, Washington area not knowing exacdy what he was going to get, except for a load of talent. Over Couples' three seasons on the Cougar golf team, Williams helped mold him into one of the best collegiate players in the nation, good enough to leave college early in search of the PGA Tour. As a Cougar, Couples played on 2 7 championship teams, including three South West Conference championship teams. Couples also won the SWC in 1979, and finished only one shot back in the same tournament one year later. Individually, Couples won six medalist trophies, beginning with his SWC triumph. However, Couples never experienced winning the NCAA title, which has been won by UH an unprecedented 16 times. Since Couples left UH, he has gone on to have a successful career on the PGA Tour. In 1983 he won The Player's Championship, which he repeated in stellar fashion in 1995. However, his biggest win was in 1992 when he held on and won the Masters, his sole major to date. He came close to repeating at the Masters in 1998, only to fall one shot back o: Mark O'Meara on the final hole. The former Coog has quite a following on the PGA Tour. While he does not have an "Arnie's Army" galleries have been known to chant "You da Man" or "Go Boom-Boom" towards him. Couples has taken it real well. "Sure, I appreciate it. I don't play in Houston (The Shell Houston Open) much, only because I have not played well here. But I get a great reception here, partially because I went to Houston. The fans are great and they really enjoy cheering me on. It really pumps me up." Couples puts on a charity tournament each fall that benefits UH golf. The Three Amigos tourney, cohosted by fellow UH alums Blaine McCallister and Jim Nantz, is where Couples gives back to the Houston community. Fred Couples has left an enduring legacy on UH and on the golf world. He is known as a true winner on and off the golf course, and has continually proven that here in Houston. Couples, only a month removed from his second place finish at the Masters, works on his putting stroke at the 1998 Shell Houston Open in The Woodlands. Photo by Matt Rogers Fred Couples 169
